Online Poker Links
The great popularity of poker in the early years of the 21st century has stimulated the publication of a huge number of poker web sites. Many of these sites exist only to provide a vehicle for advertising various online poker rooms, and are financed by commissions paid by the poker rooms for the players that are introduced. In order to attract visitors, the sites usually offer some information on poker rules and strategy, and nearly all carry reviews of the poker rooms they promote. While many of these sites recycle much the same information in various formats, some distinguish themselves from their competitors by offering independent reviews and adding facilities such as poker news items, discussion forums, player biographies, information on rakeback schemes and other special features.
A selection of poker sites is listed below.
